Here is the link to an older boat that has become available in Aspendale in Victoria:

Australian Sailfish 720

The plan for 720 was sold to a D Shute of Bondi in NSW in 1966, so I wonder what the story is of how it ended up in Aspendale.


Currently under offer

Two great boats for the price of TWO!

Buy one or buy both, but don’t miss out on these two!

1836 Beagle and 1877 Ragamuffin were built by the Yuill family in Strathmore, Melbourne with the help of Jim French’s dad in 1969/70. They were both registered in 1970 and after some use, they were garage stored for about 30 years before the current owner picked them up, and since then they have been garaged at Phillip Island. Due to ill health it is time for them to find new homes.

Both boats are ready to hit the water, one needs a little work to bring it up to top shape, the other is ready to go straight off the roof racks.

$400 each, or two good boats for $800!

In the first instance contact the site administrator at for more information.


For Sale

Sailfish almost complete, no known number, but named Aussie Flyer. The hull looks to be an early model, note the bow shape. Hull, mast, boom, rudder and centreboard all look to be in good shape. It is ready to be used pretty well straight away but the sail it comes with is not a standard Sailfish sail, note the four battens and the loose foot in the photo. Located in the Geelong area this is a boat ready to use now and then you could spend your winter doing a full overhaul and fitting a new sail.


Price around the $300 mark, contact the website administrator at for further details.


Wanted: Sailfish Hull 3250, also known as Ockerfish. Last seen Northern Beaches of Sydney in the mid 1980’s. Distinctive appearance, red cedar hull and deck. Deck with twin silver ash inlays down centre of boat. See photo of restored hull in the 1980’s in the gallery. Mast, boom, sail, matching cedar and ash centreboard and rudder have been recovered. If you have the hull or know where it is please contact the website administrator via the contact page, it would more than make my day!
